The Making of The Grudge Keeper Have you ever wondered how a story that begins as just black words on a white page is transformed into a fully illustrated picture book? I could lay out the logistics myself, but I thought you’d rather hear it from someone a little closer to the action.

    Eventually, of course, I get used to it and can’t imagine the book any other way. With The Grudge Keeper, the big surprise was that there was no adjustment period. I couldn’t have imagined all the clever things Eliza did, but the story felt exactly as I’d pictured it. For me, it was love at first sight. No one in the town of Bonnyripple ever kept a grudge. No one, that is, except old Cornelius, the Grudge Keeper. Ruffled feathers, petty snits, minor tiffs and major huffs, insults, umbrage, squabbles, dust-ups, and imbroglios - the Grudge Keeper received them all, large and small, tucking each one carefully away in his ramshackle cottage.
